    Think Tank Bulletin Board
    By Michelle

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I had an interactive bulletin board this year called "The Think Tank". It was a bulletin board made to look like a fish tank, huge fish in the middle, blue background, sea border. Every Monday I would put a different problem on the board. Example: word problem for math, editing a sentence for writing, social studies question, draw the 3 kinds of levers for science...etc. They wrote their answer down, put it in a tray and took a little fish, put their name on it and stapled it on the bulletin board. At the end of the week I corrected them all. Those who got the problem right, their fish got put into a real fish bowl. I drew a name out and that person got to go to the candy jar. The kids loved it and it allowed me to put up bonus questions across the curriculum for them to do in their spare time! This year it's going to be a cage with an ape in it. The kids will put their names on a banana instead and I will draw them out like I did last year.
